When you mix a female vampire with a male werewolf your just asking for trouble. An touble is just what Sidonie Wolf and Joe Bleythin get when they are paired up to on a dangerous mission to save both vampires and werewolf's. This is a great series. Very involved and playing one book off the others. Reading is order is suggested.

I liked the Vampire-Werewolf romance. Different from Sizemore's usual human-vampire theme. In this book you also got a second romance between our female lead's father and a human woman he met in France during WWII. At first I was a bit confused by the change between the now and then stories, however, after a few time changes I got comfortable with the format and finished the book with ease. The end was very satisfying and set up a likely lead into the next book. Something to look forward to in hopefully the near future.

Primal Needs is the seventh book in a vampire series by Susan Sizemore and tells the story of Sid, a female vampire, and her werewolf love interest Joe, as well as the dangers they face together.

I did not find this an enjoyable read, which may in part be due to the fact that I did not read the previous books in the series. I found the two page chapters broke up the story into disconnected pieces and the jumping between many time periods distracting...and really, are sixty one chapters in 300 pages really necessary? Some of the concepts in the book were interesting (such as vampires producing a "dawn" drug so that they could go out in daylight), but the writing skipped around too much and lacked details and just didn't hold my interest. None of the characters were sufficiently fleshed out so that the reader cares what happens to them, they don't really have personalities. I won't be reading the rest of the series and can't really recommend this novel as a satisfying read.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
At long last we get the romance between former friends and partners: vampiress sleuth Sidonie Wolf and werewolf detective Joe Bleythin. The pair have been estranged for several years after, much to his disgust, Joe discovered that Sidonie erased from his mind all memories of the love they shared during the affair that consummated years of forbidden attraction - vampires and werewolves both have cultural taboos against mating outside their species. Where there has been some recent loosening in strictures for male Primes (vampires) , females like Sidonie are far too rare and `Sid' knows that should the matriarchal leaders of the Primes discover her indiscretion, it would mean death for both her and Joe in order to make them a cautionary tale to all other females who think to stray from the tradition that chafes the younger generation of female Primes.

Joe has hated Sid for what he perceives as `mind rape' and once his memories are unlocked, freeing the details of their passionate encounters, he is even angrier at her betrayal. But when a mission for the Dark Angels, a special ops group of supernaturals dedicated to protecting their races from threat of discovery and annihilation, forces Joe and Sid into close contact, Joe is having a hard time maintaining his anger and an even harder time thinking at all because of the overwhelming desire he still feels for Sid.

But Sid and Joe's isn't the only romantic reunion in the book. Sid's sire Tony has finally decided to claim the woman, Rose, he has loved for 60 years - the human woman he was ordered to leave behind by the matriarch of his clan.

Vampire Sidonie Wolf and werewolf Joe Bleythin fall in love. Both know their respective species outlaws a relationship between them; the penalty is death. Fearing for her Joe, Sid sacrifices her heart by modifying his memories of her and their love. Soon afterward, Joe shuts down their private investigative partnership and breaks up with her. Joe joins vampire Tobias Strahan's Dark Angels, a group dedicated to protecting paranormal species.

Meanwhile Sid's father, Antony has cherished from the shadows for six decades the human Rose; he loves her but is forbidden to do anything about his feelings by his species for the last 60 years. When someone kidnaps his Rose, Tony pleads with his daughter to save her life. She is teamed up with Dark Angel Joe to find and rescue Rose. Still angry with her for what she did to him, Joe also realizes she could not erase his love for her or conceal her love for him.

The latest Primal (see HEAT and DESIRES) urban romantic suspense fantasy is a strong tale of star crossed lovers. Sid thought she was doing what was best for Joe while he felt she betrayed their trust. Their acrimonious beginning makes vampires and werewolves seem genuine in Susan Sizemore's Primal realm. Fans will enjoy this refreshing second chance at love thriller; that is if they survive the enemy and their two species.

Or at least pieced together like Frankenstein...

I've not read previous books by Sizemore and I'm not even sure if this is a series or not. Reading it, it felt like one. I wondered if Sizemore was repeating instances from previous novels or just giving flashbacks. It was hard to decide which. I do know that the story started off with a vampire, Sid, and a werewolf, Joe. Sid and Joe apparently had a relationship in the past when Sid screwed it up. Sizemore flips back and forth between the past and present day to explain this.

Then...halfway through the book she jumps to another story between the vampire Tony and the human woman Rose. Tony had to give up Rose because his mommie said so. Sizemore again flips back and forth between the past and the present day.

All this flipping and switching characters was very confusing. Sizemore does NOT have a talent in this area to smoothly transition between people, places, and time. It would have been a better story if she would have stuck with one set of characters and time.
